Pineapples make me wish for summer. And these are some seriously cool pineapples. When I saw them in the Target Dollar Spot, I knew they would make the perfect addition to our mini eraser series! This pineapple mini eraser math activity set for preschoolers is such a fun way to practice counting, graphing, matching colors and more!

I kind of think that they need to change the cliche “cool as a cucumber” to “cool as a pineapple” in honor of these awesome little erasers!
Ten-Frames & Tracing Cards for Counting to 10
Use an erasable crayon or marker to trace the number words on each card. Then use the pineapple mini-erasers to count out the numbers as the kids cover each pineapple in the ten-frame.
Pineapple Sorting Spinner Game
To play, spin the spinner and place a pineapple mini-eraser of the matching color on the correct pineapple by matching the color of their sunglasses. This is a great time to work on naming colors because they will have the opportunity to repeat them many times. You can also work on counting when the child decides they are done spinning.
Count the pineapples on each color and discuss which pineapple has the most, the least or the same.
Pineapple Graphing Spinner
Spin the spinner and place a pineapple mini-eraser in the correct column on the graph. Continue until one of the colors reaches the top of the graph. This is another great opportunity to discuss more than, less than or equal.
Pineapple I Spy Counting Game
Use the pineapple mini-erasers as place markers as the children count each color of sunglasses. Record the answers on the bottom of the mat with an erasable marker or crayon (we LOVE Crayola Dry Erase Crayons!)
Pineapple Pattern Mats
3 levels of difficulty make these pattern mats perfect for everyone! Work on ABAB, ABC, and AABB patterns with these simple pattern mats.
Pineapple Counting to 10 Mat
A simple mat for counting to 10! The kid will fill in each box and count up to each number. Great for reinforcement of rote counting skills and perfect for kids who are just beginning to count since the boxes will fill up when they add the correct number of mini erasers.
Spin & Cover Color Game
Cover the correct color of sunglasses on the pineapples as the child spins the spinner. Such a fun way to learn about matching & colors!
